Enjoy your weekend at an interactive play or partake in area food fundraisers

1 month ago Fremont Tribune

Audience members of The Rose Theater’s latest production don’t have to worry about staying in their seats during the show.

Instead, they’re encouraged to dance in the aisles during “Havana Hop.”

This interactive play performed by a single actor is rocking The Rose Theater’s mainstage through Sunday, Feb. 19. Attendees will learn lessons about self-confidence and perseverance against a background of multi-cultural heritage.

The production is designed to help families learn a little about Cuban-American culture while grooving along to a hip-hop beat.

“’Havana Hop’ is a mix of salsa, music and hip hop all run through the lens of the story of a young girl who is trying to find her unique way of being in the world,” Rose Artistic Director Matt Gutschick explained in a press release.

Writer and performer Paige Hernandez brings the story of young Yeila to life onstage in the dynamic participation play, where one actress creates three generations of family members on a discovery of her multi-cultural heritage.

Paige Hernandez

In “Havana Hop,” Yeila dreams of being a superstar, but her lack of confidence gives her awful stage fright. With advice from her mother and mentors, she begins a journey to find her roots, get confidence and be amazing. Throughout the show, audience members are encouraged to move along with Hernandez as she shares Yeila’s journey of cultural discovery through music.

The show is appropriate for all ages, especially younger children. It runs approximately 60 minutes.

Havana Hop

Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Interpretation for the deaf and audio description services for the blind will be offered at the 2 p.m. show on Saturday. A sensory-friendly performance will be offered at 5 p.m. Saturday.
